Medequip Suffolk Donate Matchday Wheelchairs to Ipswich Town Foundation

Medequip and Ross Care at Ipswich Town FC

Medequip and its wheelchair service, Ross Care, are delighted to announce the donation of nine wheelchairs to Ipswich Town FC Foundation for supporters to use on match days.

The wheelchairs, which are all branded, will contribute to making the experience of visiting Portman Road more accessible on a matchday, adding to improvements across last season, including the return of sensory packs and the addition of more accessible benches in the pre-match FanZone.

'We are delighted to have been able to supply wheelchairs for use by visitors to the stadium. We work hard to give back to the community that we live and work in, and we look forward to continuing to work with ITFC to increase disabled access to football for everyone of all ages, whether playing or watching.' said Andrea Clifton, Account Manager at Medequip's Suffolk Depot.

This donation will further solidify the Club and the Foundation's commitment to providing an accessible for all supporters and those looking to get involved in football, aligning with Medequip's strong belief in equality in sport.

Partnerships and agreements with sporting organisations, aiming to help make sport more inclusive for all, has been a passion of Medequip's in recent years, highlighted in the positive efforts put into the work done with Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation, Bristol Rovers Community Trust and Rotherham United Community Sports Trust.

'This is an incredibly generous and thoughtful donation from Medequip,' added Disability Liaison Officer for ITFC Foundation, Lee Smith.

'It will allow the Club to offer more assistance to its guests and supporters and enable them to attend games and events here at Portman Road. We can't thank Medequip and Ross Care enough.'

Any supporters looking to use the wheelchairs can contact the Club's Disability Liaison Officer, Lee Smith, at lee.smith@itfc.co.uk.
